Pope Francis Hospitalised For Respiratory Infection

pope francis hospitalised


According to Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni, Pope Francis will be hospitalized for “a few days” to receive treatment for a respiratory infection.



The 86-year-old pontiff had been experiencing breathing difficulties and was admitted to Gemelli hospital for tests, although he has tested negative for COVID-19.


Although the Vatican had initially described the hospital visit as a scheduled check-up, Italian media reports suggested otherwise, pointing to the last-minute cancellation of a planned TV interview.



Pope Francis had appeared in good health earlier in the day when he attended his regular weekly general audience at the Vatican.
